What can I major in?
We have a single major: human ecology. The absence of multiple majors should not suggest a lack of academic rigor. At COA you will grapple with serious intellectual issues. Our single major, however, will expose you to the world in a comprehensive way, not a segmented way. You will have the opportunity to create your own unique educational experience within a flexible but demanding education framework. Perhaps the best way to understand the breadth and depth of our academic offerings is to look over our courses and information about our alumni.
We'd love to introduce you to College of the Atlantic in person. Visit soon!
COA — Life Changing.
"COA fosters thinking outside the box and across disciplines — and most issues, whether global or local, don't stay in tidy boxes that fit within any one academic discipline."
Heather Albert-Knopp | Class of 1999
